Cooler Master Hyper 212+ is a good one. I use it on a Thuban 6core that when all cores are under load it runs hotter than i7 930 and the Hyper 212+ does a very good job to keep it cool.

AHHH, NO AMD runs hotter than an Intel i7, sorry.

The 212+ would be borderline at best even with two high CFM fans on it for an i7 @ 4.0 Ghz.

You may want to look into something like the NH-D14, Prolimtech, etc.... if you want good temps running an i7 @ 4.0 Ghz.
